Putting the Preaching into Practice



It’s been a while since my last post but, I can tell you, that this is not indicative of my level of activity in taking on my challenge.  I shared previously how, by June of 2013, I had nearly gained back all of the weight I had lost previously.  When I finally got the nerve to get back on the scale, it read 304 pounds.  I was heartbroken, depressed and angry at myself for falling back so hard.  That was then, this is now.

Later, I shared when I had shed my first 30 pounds, and then 40 pounds gone.  Well, I’m now over 5o pounds lost (53 to be more precise). This means that I have officially passed the 50% mark of my goal to reach 200 pounds.

I am now at a point where I finally feel that I am practicing what I have been preaching.  When I started this blog, it was with the best of intentions but, for a while there, I was feeling like a bit of a hypocrite.  It was almost like I was trying to convince myself that, if I wrote about it, it would magically spur some action on my part.  Now, I know that nothing beats a failure but a try.  I am becoming living proof of that adage.

Now, back to work!
